Alcohol Rehab Centers

Alcohol rehab centers are often necessary for those who feel that they have lost control due to an alcohol addiction. Not all alcohol rehab facilities are the same though. Most will want to choose an alcohol rehab center that is geographically close so that they have the support of family and friends nearby if needed.

View from a recovery center

Alcohol rehabilitation facilities often share quarters with drug rehab centers because of the similarities and treatment overlap of the two addictions. Also, some who check into such facilities have dual diagnoses of alcohol and drug addiction, which most often needs to be treated under one roof.

Some of the different types of rehab centers include: inpatient, residential, detox, outpatient, 12-Step and 12-Step alternative centers. Also, treatment centers just for adolescents are also available.

Inpatient Rehab Centers

Inpatient treatment is indicated for individuals who have had a long history of trying to remain sober. Individuals who have made many prior attempts on their own to remain sober fair better in inpatient treatment programs, which are usually located in hospital settings.

Residential Rehab Centers

Residential alcohol rehab centers offer treatment programs that are not as structured as those at inpatient rehab centers. They may be short-term or long-term depending upon the history of the individual and severity of the alcohol addiction. Residential centers usually offer a less clinical and more environmentally pleasing setting for healing to occur.


Alcohol Recovery Facility

Outpatient Rehab Facilities

For individuals who have a recent history of alcohol abuse and wish to correct the situation, an outpatient rehab center may have the best outcome. These individuals usually do not have a long history of alcohol abuse, such as adolescent and young adult abusers, and an initial approach of outpatient treatment and counseling is most often advised.

Alcohol Detox Rehab Centers

Alcohol detoxification is necessary before other forms of treatments can begin. When choosing an alcohol detox center it is important to choose one that is also a licensed medical facility. Alcohol detox can be severe and include many complications, so it is imperative that this is done under the supervision of medical professionals. See Alcohol Withdrawal for more information.

12-Step Alcohol Rehab Facilities

Like the name says, 12-step alcohol rehab centers base their recovery programs around the 12-step model of Alcoholics Anonymous. Some find this model makes for an easier transition when going from inpatient treatment, to outpatient and back into a community-based 12-step support system. The 12-Step model is supported by over 90-percent of the rehab centers nationwide.

12-Step Alternative Rehab Centers

The 12-Step model does not work for everyone. We're a proponent of "do whatever it takes to gain and maintain sobriety" so we present a few treatments model that can be viewed as alternatives to the 12-Step model. A few of the reasons people drop out of 12-Step programs include difficulty accepting the need for a higher power, belief in a different kind of higher power, not viewing addiction as a lifelong disease or not wanting to attend groups. Some of the alternative treatment models include cognitive-behavioral therapy, the Matrix Model, Supportive-Expressive Psychotherapy, Individualized Addiction Counseling, Motivational Enhancement Therapy, Behavioral Therapy, Multidimensional Family Therapy (MDFT) and other holistic methods.

Adolescent Rehab Facilities

Adolescent alcohol rehabilitation centers specialize in the treatment of teens for alcohol abuse. Because adolescence is a particular tangled time developmentally and teens typically share better with one another, special treatment centers focus just on this particular population.

Alcohol rehab has come along way since the Betty ford clinic opened its doors in Rancho Mirage, California in 1982. There are many more choices for types of treatment now and much more scientific data to support the treatment methods. The important thing to remember is that alcohol addiction treatment can not be approached in a cookie cutter method, since alcohol addiction affects everyone differently. The important thing is to find what works for you or your loved one and to do everything possible to make it work for a lifetime.
